Ratan Tata’s dream, the Nano, is trying yet another way to stay afloat. Showcased back at the Auto Expo early last year, the company finally seems to be on the verge of launching the AMT version of the car. Called as the F-Tronic, it shall get the facility of an openable rear tailgate as well!
Tata Motors has announced that their smallest entry level car, the Nano, has been crowned as the Most Trusted Brand in the hatchback category in the Brand Trust Report, India Study – 2015 for the third time in a row. The Brand Trust Report, India Study 2015, lists 1,000 most trusted brands of the country, picked up from 19,000 unique brands, from 270 different categories.
While the loom of the guillotine hangs over the neck of the Tata Nano, the manufacturer is still trying its level best to make things work. The Nano Twist, which was launched last year, has been given another variant, the Nano Twist XE, to help bolster some sales and help the Nano get a grip over the situation.
It is not a big secret that Tata Nano is not doing well. The company sold just 1,654 units of the car in October 2014 in comparison to 2,120 units in the same month last year. This huge drop in sales, despite all the hard work in its image makeover, is really disheartening.
By now most of you would be aware about the flunking of Datsun GO and Maruti Suzuki Swift in the recent Global NCAP crash tests. Now, Max Mosley, Chariman of Global NCAP, has written to Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of Nissan, to immediately withdraw the Datsun GO from the Indian, Indonesian, and Philippines car markets.
